When you own Products. You own the Products once we have received payment in full, including all applicable delivery charges.

Returns and Refunds

Your rights when you end the contract will depend on what you have bought, whether there is anything wrong with it, how we are performing and when you decide to end the contract:

If what you have bought is faulty or misdescribed you may have a legal right to end the contract (or to get the product repaired or replaced or to get some or all of your money back), see section  9;

If you want to end the contract because of something we have done or have told you we are going to do, see section 6.2;

If you have just changed your mind about the product, see section 6.3. You may be able to get a refund if you are within the cooling-off period, but this may be subject to deductions and you will have to pay the costs of return of any goods;

Ending the contract because of something we have done or are going to do. If you are ending a contract for a reason set out at (a) to (c) below the contract will end immediately and we will refund you in full for any products which have not been provided and you may also be entitled to compensation.

The reasons are:

  • We have told you about an error in the price or description of the product and you do not wish to proceed;
  • There is a risk that delivery may be significantly delayed because of events outside our control: you have a legal right to end the contract because of something we have done wrong.
  • Exercising your right to change your mind (Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013). For most products bought online you have a legal right to change your mind within 14 days and receive a refund.  These rights are explained in more detail in these terms.

You don’t have the right to change your mind in respect of perishable products or products sealed for health protection or hygiene purposes, once these have been unsealed after you receive them.

How long do I have to change my mind? You have 14 days after the day you receive the goods, or where orders are split into several deliveries, 14 days after the day you receive the last delivery, to change your mind.

How to terminate your order (including if you have changed your mind)

Tell us you want to stop your order by calling us on 020 7801 3430 or email us at shop@healthista.com providing your name, address, order details and your phone number and email address.

Returning products after ending the contract. You must return products to us by post to us at 85 Frampton Street, London NW8 8NQ.

When we will pay the costs of return. We will pay the costs of return if the products are faulty or misdescribed; or if you are ending the contract because we have told you of an upcoming change to the product or these terms, an error in pricing or description, a delay in delivery due to events outside our control or because you have a legal right to do so as a result of something we have done wrong.  In all other circumstances (including where you are exercising your right to change your mind) you must pay the costs of return.

How we will refund you.  We will refund you the price you paid for the products including delivery costs, by the method you used for payment. However, we may make deductions from the price, as described below.

Deductions from refunds. If you are exercising your right to change your mind:

We may reduce your refund of the price (excluding delivery costs) to reflect any reduction in the value of the goods, if this has been caused by your handling them in a way which would not be permitted in a shop. If we refund you the price paid before we are able to inspect the goods and later discover you have handled them in an unacceptable way, you must pay us an appropriate amount.

The maximum refund for delivery costs will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method we offer.

When your refund will be made. We will make any refunds due to you as soon as possible.  If you are exercising your right to change your mind then your refund will be made within 14 days from the day on which we receive the product back from you or, if earlier, the day on which you provide us with evidence that you have sent the product back to us. For information about how to return a product to us, see section 8.2.

Our rights to end the contract

We may end the contract if you break it. We may end the contract at any time by writing to you if  you do not make any payment when it is due and you still do not make payment within 7 days of us reminding you that payment is due; or if you do not, within a reasonable time, allow us to deliver the products to you or collect them from us.

If there is a problem with the product

How to tell us about problems. If you have any questions or complaints, please contact us by telephone on 020 7801 3430, by writing to us at 85 Frampton Street, London NW8 8NQ or by email to shop@healthista.com.

However, It is possible that, despite our best efforts, products on our site may be incorrectly priced. If the correct price is higher than the price stated, we will contact you for your instructions before accepting your order.

Our responsibility for loss or damage suffered by you

We are responsible to you for foreseeable loss and damage caused by us. If we fail to comply with these terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breach or our failing to use reasonable care and skill. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen, for example, if you discussed it with us during the sales process.

We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors; for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; for breach of your legal rights in relation to the products as summarised at section 9.2; and for defective products under the Consumer Protection Act 1987.

We are not liable for business losses. We only supply the products for domestic and private use. If you use the products for any commercial, business or re-sale purpose we will have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.

Other than as set out in section 11.1 our maximum liability arising out of any order for the supply of products to you will be limited to the retail price of the products.

Other important terms

Transfer of this agreement. We may transfer our rights and obligations under these terms to another organisation. We will always tell you in writing if this happens and will ensure that the transfer will not affect your contractual rights. You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these terms to another person if we agree to this in writing.

Nobody else has any rights under this contract.  This contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms.

If a court finds part of this contract illegal, the rest will continue in force. Each of the sections of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining sections will remain in full force and effect.

Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date. For example, if you miss a payment and we do not chase you but we continue to provide the products, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.

Which laws apply to this contract and where you may bring legal proceedings. These terms are governed by English law and you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in the English courts. If you live in Scotland you can bring proceedings in respect of the products in either the Scottish or the English courts. If you live in Northern Ireland you can bring proceedings in respect of the products in either the Northern Irish or the English courts.
